#YeahTHATAgenda: Egg-Centric Indian Restaurant Opens, New Camperdown Hotel Revealed, BSSF New Boss, Future Greer, Best Bottom Shelf Rye Whiskey

Apr 03, 2019 06:41AM ● By Chris Haire
Greenville's got a new Indian restaurant and this one has an egg-lovin' heart: Open for little more than a month, Mr. Egg O Little India has been serving Indian favorites from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 435 N. Pleasantburg Drive. 

While you'll find many of the dishes that Upstate diners are accustomed to when they order India cuisine -- like garlic naan, chicken korma, and palak paneer -- you'll also discover that owner and chef Prakash Patel wanted to offer something a little different, which is why a section of his menu is dedicated to the humble but delicious egg. 

And these aren't just your standard American egg offerings. Patel and his team are serving up authentic Indian egg dishes, like egg curry, omelette chicken kabab, and egg gotala (a spicy dish with both boiled and fried eggs). Note: "gotala" means "confusion," an apt description given the two different styles of egg combined together.

Mr. Egg O offers dine in service, but you can also order carryout. Just call: 864-631-2868.

You can see more of the menu below. 


First Look At AC Hotel By Marriott, Renderings Released Of New Camperdown Hotel: Greenvillians were given their first look at the new AC Hotel by Marriott, one of the key components of the currently-under-construction Camperdown development. 

Owned and operated by Greenville's Auro Hotels -- the company behind the building that kick-started downtown's renaissance, the Hyatt Regency -- the "upscale, lifestyle-oriented" AC Hotel "will feature 196 rooms, including five luxury suites," according to a statement.

Inspired by European architecture -- Spanish in particular -- the 196-room AC Hotel will feature a Main Street bar and tapas restaurant, a speakeasy, and a 16,000 square foot rooftop bar and event venue. Common space elements will draw from "Greenville’s textile heritage and the Greenville News," which saw its longtime HQ leveled to make way for the Camperdown project before moving off of Main to a new building.
Camperdown is expected to fundamentally transform downtown Greenville, with some speculating that the so-called center of downtown will shift to the new development. And with good reason: Bank of America has already announced they will move their downtown offices from ONE Plaza to Camperdown, while long-time Greenville business firm Elliott Davis recently announced it will be moving its headquarter to Camperdown.

Falls Towers, the signature high-rise at Camperdown recently released new renderings and details about its luxury condos, while just steps away from Camperdown, the boutique hotel The Grand Bohemian Greenville is set to break ground April 17.


Greer Station shuttle service releases app tracking shuttle locations in real-time: Greer Station is currently in the middle of a massive makeover, one that has brought with it road and sidewalk closures. Even though, downtown traffic and parking has been affected, Greer Station remains the dining and weekend-fun heart of the city. And much like Greenville has its trolley system, Greer offers its own free shuttle service. It runs from Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. and Sunday, 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.

This week, the City of Greer "introduced an app for both iOS and Android that allows users to track the shuttle locations in real time and even request a pick up from one of the many stops downtown," according to a statement. You can find out more here.

Best & Brightest 35 and Under
Carlie Boese
Robert Half Office Team | Branch Manager
Age 31

My career with Robert Half began in November 2010 after exiting the sports information field. Having been a college athlete myself, I loved being an advocate for student athletes at the universities I worked with, but I was yearning to get more plugged into the young professional community here in Greenville.

Robert Half gave me the opportunity to directly impact people’s lives right here in the town where I was putting down roots. I worked almost exclusively with the unemployed population and made a living becoming an expert in partnering with local Upstate clients to find top talent for their organizations. It was more than just staffing—it was matchmaking. And I was hooked.

In the better part of a decade, I have partnered with more than 700 companies staffing 3,000-plus jobs and placing 1,000-plus candidates here in the community that I love. 

The best part about that? This job has afforded me the opportunity to network with a very diverse group of people, inadvertently introducing me to the Red Shoe Society, where I spent several years on the board, as both their volunteer chair and, later, president. During my time with RSS, I was able to lead multiple record-breaking fundraising events—most notably, our Plane Pull and #StripesforRMHC campaigns.
